And what have you learned today?

Little Girl comes over to me, pats me several time on the arm and then starts talking, completely ignoring the fact that I am working with and talking to another child.

Me: (somewhat irritably because this has happened before) - words to the effect that I'm working with someone, she is not ever to pat me like that again (it's a pet hate, no pun intended there) and she must wait until it is her turn as there are 28 other children in the class . . .  blah, blah . . .

Off goes L G.

Later on:
L G:  Mrs Clark, Mrs . . . oh . . .
and she stops and waits for me to finish what I was saying to someone else before I turn to her.
Me:  Well done, L G, that's really good,  You saw I was busy and you waited politely until I had finished.  I'm very proud of you, give yourself a pat on the back!  (they like pats on the back)  Now, what did you want to say?

Just before the end of school:
Me:  Can you remember what you learned today, L G?
L G:  I learned that I talk too much . . .


I did explain again!
